A red clock and the dwarf 
will not meet on the wall. 
Time slips out in virginal shyness. 

On the verge of collapse was 
an ossified civil group 
after emotive conception fails. 

Unambiguously an azure 
sky measures the human steps 
in somnambulant thoughts. 

You throw a bound kid 
in a water tank, after postpartum blues 
and walk away with a halter. 

Who will grab the fractured 
age, during the fire dance? 
A mirror lies flat after announcing the award.

Satish Verma's picture

Pitted against the forces bigger than him Satish Verma has been fighting with life on his own terms. In this savage, violent and raging times, he has authored several collections of poetry in English and Hindi, in concrete and precise verses, analyzing the complex nature of man, history and ancient heritage of Homo sapiens. And standing at crossroads he is asking where do we go from here. His poetry communicates a beautiful, mystical mind exploring the images of nature, trying to find the meaning of the life and death, the ecstasy of talking to moon, flowers and wind in the kingdom of god. He wants to know cannot we live in peace?, Satish Verma addresses the most complex questions of philosophy, religion and political culture in a very subtle but virtual shocking manner.
